This much-needed reform measure is aimed to protect the integrity of our state government and maintain the balance of influence in the election of public officials by establishing campaign contribution limits in Pennsylvania.
Our new property tax plan would eliminate school property taxes for 2 million homeowners, reduce property taxes by $1,990 for another 1.2 million homesteads and provide a $500 rent rebate for more than 800,000 Pennsylvanians.

Pennsylvania Legislative Arts and Culture Caucus
The Pennsylvania Arts and Culture Caucus, a bi-cameral, bi-partisan caucus, was established in October 2012 with the purpose of providing caucus members access to the latest research, education and policy developments on arts and culture. Additionally we support caucus members in their efforts to draft and pass legislation that advances arts, culture, and tourism in the Commonwealth.
